A very interesting article here [cnn.com] about the plan to implement a global system for multilingual domain names being held up by someone already holding a patent for the same ideas.

Walid filed paperwork with the IETF claiming that it will seek licensing fees "based on reciprocity" if this approach is adopted in the group's final standard.

IETF officials last week asked Walid to reconsider and instead license the patent for free to all interested parties. If not, the IETF will likely scrap this approach and start over, which could make Walid's patent worthless.
